Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) and deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism (DVT/PE) are associated with many risk factors. It is unclear why CVT occurs less often than DVT/PE. Age dependent risk factors may play a role. The aim of our study was to compare risk factors in a uniform age group of CVT and DVT/PE patients aged between 15 and 50 years. Thrombophilic markers and clinical risk factors of 79 CVT patients and 173 DVT/PE patients aged 15-50 years were compared. Multivark able logistic regression analysis was performed to investigate if risk factors were independently associated with CVT or DVT/PE. Cerebral venous thrombosis patients were younger (median age 30 years vs. 42 years; p
